HARD-CEM is engineered to provide concrete with superior hardness and improved durability for demanding construction projects. HARD-CEM is unique in its ability to enhance the integrity of air-entrained and non air-entrained concretes.

HARD-CEM is a concrete hardener developed for ready-mix and pre-cast concrete applications. Unlike surface applied hardeners which are labor intensive, problematic for quality control and unsuitable for air-entrained concrete. HARD-CEM is added to the concrete mix during the batching operation. HARD-CEM is the only hardener of its kind that can be utilized in air-entrained concretes.

Standard ASTM abrasion tests have shown HARD-CEM to reduce the mass loss associated with abrasion by up to 66% compared with non-hardened concrete control sample.


Laboratory abrasion research suggests that HARD-CEM could double the life expectancy of a non air-entrained concrete floor.
